We recruit men and women who have a good background, strong work history, and solid character. We find that these individuals, even if they do not have prior law enforcement experience, can become outstanding police officers. At left, an LBPD Police Officer Recruit performs an exercise at the Police Academy at Golden West College. One of the Academy Recruit Training Officers, Sergeant Jason Farris, offers him guidance and encouragement. Sergeant Farris works full-time with the Laguna Beach Police Department while also working at the Golden West Police Academy. There, he is able to keep an eye on LBPD's newly hired officers.
We are also continuously recruiting for positions such as Beach Patrol, Dispatch, Records, and Parking. If you are interested in applying for a position in our Police Department, please apply online.
If you have additional questions, please email Department Training Officer Randy Bitonti or call him at (949) 497-0374.
